There is no way either of these people/person works in any way with child protection.riccione wrote:As has already been posted, this is an entirely normal procedure, and as someone who had testicular cancer as a teenager i can't emphasise enough how important it is that our boys have their testicles checked as they reach puberty and beyond - i wish to god i had!
To the initial poster, i would say that if you're worried then either ask if you could be present or arrange for a chaperone to be. And to the second and third posters on this thread (who i suspect are the same person), i'd love to know exactly what your involvement in child protection is and why you'd respond to this standard procedure in such an alarmist way.
One of them (assuming they are not the same person) even recommended having the OP's mum contact the LADO to remain anonymous.
Anyone who thinks there is a need to remain anonymous to the LADO (presumably because they are all in it together in one big conspiracy) is a fantasist and not someone who works in child protection.
